Golden “chicken” Patties

From Vegetarian Times
Submitted by Mom

(2) 15 oz. cans chickpeas
1 ½ c. quick oats
1 clove of garlic minced or 1 tsp garlic powder
Salt to taste (1/2 tsp season-all works well)
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
2 tbls. olive oil (optional)
2 to 3 tbls. vegetable oil

1. Drain the chickpeas and keep the liquid
2. In a food processor or blender process the chickpeas with ½ c. of the liquid.  If your puree is dry, add more liquid a tablespoon at a time to achieve a smooth, thick paste
3. Place the chickpea puree in a mixing bowl
4. Add the remaining ingredients expect the vegetable oil
5. Mix well, adding additional water or oats as necessary to make a mixture that keeps its shape.
6. Shape into 8 patties (put a small amount of butter in your hands to form the mixture so that it doesn’t stick)
7. In a heavy skillet, heat the oil (about medium) and fry the patties until golden brown on each side.  About 5 minutes on each side

Serving Suggestion: serve like burgers, with tomatoes, lettuce/spinach, etc.
